So I’m new to reefing. But I’ve started a 40 breeder build. I joined after a lot of things have been done. I built the stand and I’m going for a like old shipping crate look for the stand, because when I think of the ocean I think of fishing and shipping ports lol I don’t know. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Welcome to the fun! It looks like you've got all the basics under control and you're ready to start scaping. I think the rustic stand is really cool. I wish I were that creative and handy.
Yeah I didn’t know for a while how I wanted it to look and while I was at work I saw a whole bunch of pallets laying around as decided to use them.

Pallet wood is a good idea.bi think I'll "borrow" it for my next stand build.
Lol yeah with Lumber prices so high It was a no brainer for me and like @rsumner said I like the older kind of weathered look

Yeah I filled it up to test for leaks in the overflow and You could tell there is a slight bow in the front and back panels
Make a euro brace on top, you can get pre cut glass from a glass shop and silicone it to the top
